Miles had a happy birthday on February 21. I can't believe he has grown to be one. I gave him a coconut island cake (Alvin's ingenious design) in honor of our upcoming trip to Hawaii.
He loved it.
Yes, we are going to Hawaii for a week. Neither Alvin or I have been before. We'll visit Oahu for the Polynesian Cultural Center, and Kauai for the beautiful hikes and beaches. We're taking Miles and some babysitters - my mom and sisters.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
